Product overview

• Fully remote controllable double gang mains socket to replace your standard plug sockets
• Works as part of the LightwaveRF home automation range
• Compatible with Amazon Echo and Google Play

• 13 Amp rated allows you to plug in any mains device
• Control via your smart device or the web wherever you are in the world

What can this socket do?
The LightwaveRF double gang 13A mains sockets allow you to replace your standard double gang socket with LightwaveRF technology. You can control this from one of the handheld remotes from the range or even use your smartphone, tablet or computer to turn the socket on and off. This can prove invaluable for security purposes when you are out of the house to deter burglars. Add in the LightwaveRF Socket Locker and you can lock the socket to on or off, this can stop children turning their television back on if they’re in bed, leaving you in the knowledge they will get a good night’s sleep.

How easy is this to install?
If you have a working knowledge of household electrics you should be able to install the socket yourself. It is installed in the same way as a standard socket and will fit on to a 25mm or 35mm back box. If you are in any doubt, we recommend you consult a trained electrician, who will be able to wire this in.

Please note: To use the app with this product, you will require the optional LightwaveRF Wi-Fi Link A23RX.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice product but unreliable I was a big fan of Lightwave equipment when I first installed it but I've had two out of eight sockets fail inside little more than 2 years. That's totally unacceptable to me. Also there is no feedback so if you are not there at the time to make sure something has switched on or off, you can't be sure that it has, and sometimes things don't work 100% reliably.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product but not easy installation From a performance point of view this product does what it say - excellent. However, the design of the fitting leaves something to be desired. Large connector block behind the facia means it is difficult to fit into standard wall box with conventional ring main wiring. Flimsy front plate also means that if the wall is anything but absolutely flat it is difficult to get the facia to lay flat on the wall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice, very nice for lightting We have some table lamps we like to switch on with the wall lights. We bought a mood switch and these allow us to switch on wall lights and a table lamp with a single buttin press. We have also used with a timer to switch things off at dawn. Very reliable, the timings used to stop working sometimes but since they updated the app in December 2015 it has been fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good Simple to install and does exactly what I wanted. Remote distance is good as well, so happy. Have read the prior review re unreliability so will update if that proves the case with me. Also purchased the basic 3 pack sockets as well to try those out and again all seems good.

When used with a slave dimmer switch are the sockets dimmable or just switch on and off?

Asked by: SteveJ
No, I am sorry but the item will not be suitable for your intended application. These are mains sockets with on/off action only.

The image shows a switch for each outlet so I take it they can be manually switched on and off, can you operate each outlet independently, for example switching the left side on and off remotely and the right hand side switch it manually?

Asked by: AndyB
Yes, this can be used in this way.

Ok if I plug an extension into the socket, will all the devices within be active? 

Asked by: jabbo5
Yes that's correct. If the switch on the lightwave socket is switched on then power will go to all devices on the extension.
